Endotracheal intubation using a laryngoscope
Medical practitioners face difficulty in practicing endotracheal intubation in real world due to lack of frequent access to patients. Improper handling can result in severe injury like the breaking of patient’s teeth. Practicing on dummies does not reflect the real world situation as a number of different cases can’t be tested on dummies as well as exertion of proper hand pressure can’t be measured or reliably controlled. A virtual environment may be of help where different test cases can be practiced in a flexible environment. A proper hand-eye coordination skill may be developed with the help of two haptic devices and better handling/ monitoring of pressure can be performed.
